    So got it a couple of years ago giving oral sex to a stranger off of craigslist. So heres how it works, I am only contagious if I have a break out of cold sores. I have actually only had 2 , which is good but I think I maybe breaking out now.

    I get a bunch of bloody cold sores on my mouth all over . Its very painful. But I have medicine, I take it for 5 days then it goes away. For that 5 days I have to stay away from everyone.

    I hope if I get into a relationship in the future it wont affect it. If I break out he will just have to stay away from me for 5 days.

    I am not mad about it. I am grateful I did not come down with AIDS of the mouth. This could have been so much way worse.I wonder what the symptoms of Oral AIDS is?

    There is no such thing as "Oral AIDS". AIDS stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and is a whole body disease caused by the HIV virus. HIV and herpes are very different viruses so you have no worries there. It is estimated that over half of the U.S. population has oral herpes or HSV-1. About one in eight have genital herpes or HSV-2. You may have either one. It might be a good idea to see if you can find out what type you have. If both you and your partner have HSV-1 I do not think that you can pass it back and forth between each other. I would ask a medical professional to be sure.

    Searching the web having HSV can increase one's odd so contracting HIV, I guess the blisters create a possible entry site for the virus, so the use of condoms is even more needed if one has HSV. This article may help answer some of your questions:

    I have a type of AIDS, there are more than 80 types. Autoimmune Disease, I don't know if this is the same type of AIDS associated with HIV.

    Autoimmune Disease is where the body's own immune system attacks the cells of the body as if it were an infection of some kind. I get painful blisters on my lower legs that end up leaving them scared. Yeah I seldom wear shorts outside of the house.

    Anyway there is no virus, no infection. So it's not something that is contagious. My body just randomly decides to act as if there were.

    What ! Were you advertising BJ´s on craigslist ? Or was he soliciting them ?

    Isn´t craigslist to sell, or buy, uh, things ? You sure came up with more than you bargained for.

    Sounds like rheumatoid arthritis where the immune system believes your joints are infections. It's not pretty and you have my sympathy (I live with someone that suffers in this way).

    That is an infection one cannot be certain of without rather expensive testing. Many that have genital herpes are blissfully unaware of that fact:

    "Unfortunately, the lack of a visible outbreak doesn’t mean you’re herpes-free. Many people infected with the virus never experience an outbreak, says Mary Rosser, MD, PhD, director of obstetrics and gynecology at Montefiore Medical Center. And when they do, it frequently isn’t recognized. This explains why, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 87.4% of infected individuals have no clue."

    No when I was into my sex addiction they had personal add then , they took them down but they have a section for activity partners which should be like work out partners gaming partners not sexual type situations. But of course people looking to hook up have taken it over anyways.

    But I use to put up adds for long term sex partners, maybe they could be a friend to me like Robert was. They would come over have orals sex and maybe get a hand job, then I could get some kissing hugging stuff that made me feel good. Then they would leave and never come back.
    They wanted a one night stand and so would trick me to believe they were interested in long term sexual fling but then use me once and leave,
    The guy that gave me the herpes told me he loved to make out and kiss and hug mushy and I wanted that.So he kissed me and hugged me was cute and darling held my hand for a long time and we kissed for like an hour. I know now he probably knew he has herpes and gave it to me on purpose.

    Craigslist is an entirely different story. I may put up another thread about Craigslist.

    Are you saying you can get genital herpes without having intercourse?

    That is rather difficult. But if you have had sexual intercourse you can get herpes without realizing it. Being married does not guarantee anything because one's spouse may cheat, or your spouse may have had sex with someone before he met you so cheating is not even necessary. And most people that get herpes do not even know that they have it. Read the links.

    Mine's been on Orencia for a couple of years and it's almost a miracle drug. She was prescribed a few different medications over the last nine years or so, but this stuff really works. Please stay on top of yours, like you said, and if you don't have a Rheumatologist please find one; most MD's are not up to speed on the latest developments.

    Quite possible. There are HIV/AIDS patients that have made news on that very mission. To spread the virus and make people suffer as they do. HIV Terrorism: 13 Cases Where People Deliberately Infected Others
    There was a prostitute in a major city years ago, presumed passed on now, wherein there was a huge reward for her arrest. She'd been linked to quite a few people on that very mission. Police could not find her though she had an extensive arrest record. That's why the huge reward.

    I've heard more bad than good about Craigslist.
    Maybe , with regard to your thoughts on starting a thread, your experience there would help others?

    Is that a serious question? o_O "Oral AIDS" was stupid enough, but damn. This thread just shows that sex and health education in America is in the toilet. It amazes me how ignorant people are of HIV/AIDS, while still being terrified of it. It's not the '80s so people really don't have an excuse anymore.
